ESPN and ESPN2 will go head-to-head in 2018, but the other networks will remain in their current positions.
The two networks will compete to be the number one network in their respective markets, with ESPN2 taking the number two spot in the United States.
In addition to ESPN, both ESPN and its sibling ESPN2, the company’s ESPN2 digital platform, will also be offering an ESPN3 digital platform in 2018.
ESPN’s new standalone service will be the same one that launched in 2016.
The network’s other digital platform will be ESPNU.
ESPNU will offer the same content that is available on ESPN2 as well as the same slate of programming.
ESPNU has had a stable of live sports since its launch in 2010, but ESPN3’s growth over that time has been a mixed bag.
ESPN3 has been an ESPN 2 competitor since it launched in 2010 and has since grown from an average of 1.5 million subscribers to more than 10 million subscribers.
ESPN4 launched in 2018 and is currently the network’s second-most popular channel in terms of viewership.
ESPN2 has been the second-largest network in terms and its viewership has grown to about 1.8 million viewers per month.
In 2018, ESPN will be offering both its new standalone ESPNU and its other standalone ESPN3.
All the networks will offer a mix of local, regional, and national sports coverage.
There will be some changes to the sports schedule.
ESPN and ABC will move the 2017 football season to October and the 2018 baseball season to November.
Meanwhile, ESPN2 and ESPN3 will move to a new date in 2020, with the network taking over as the No. 1 network in the country.
ABC’s coverage will be much the same, and it will return to the September or October schedule.
As part of its bid for relevance in the digital age, ESPN has also announced that it is moving to an all-digital lineup, with a new network for every major digital platform.
